About Me

Moved to Amsterdam three years ago for the sake of escapism and adventure. Originally from Hong Kong.

Graduated with an undergraduate degree in psychology and English, now working as a computer programmer. From reading Shakespeare to writing code - I think it characterizes me pretty succinctly: Jack of all trades, master of none (周身刀冇張利 in Canto slang, I think it is so much cheekier!).

I hate spammers. And I am an insomniac who can't sleep when people are snoring. Please have this line "[name] does not snore, and is [adjective]" in your message title. Otherwise it's a guarantee rejection.

I also wish to take the chance of apologising for my low response rate - A'dam is really difficult for CSers, and a lot of people have been spamming me with copy and pasted message, much faster than I can read and delete. So no, I'm not an asshole ... please believe me :(

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing => Randomly landed me a job abroad.

True story!

Usually people say stuff alongs the line of couchsurfing is about 'sharing', 'experiencing different cultures', 'meeting awesome people'... while for me all those were true, but I also end up landing a job in the Netherlands indirectly because of CS. Stories to tell!

Interests

Philosophical bullshitting sessions with too much wine and whiskey. Artsy fartsy films. Experimenting in the kitchen. Acting like a cheeky kid.

Leftist politics. Read.
